I think we been some unlucky too, we have  10 draws, 2 of those could had been wins with some luck ( Leicester away comes to mind and maybe stoke at home) then we would have 4 more points on the board

 

I am not sure if any more offensive attitude would have gained us more, not with the squad we have

 

But I know 90% in here disagree so no real use to discuss at as one will just be jumped and asked not to post anymore.....

 

I am firmly in the 10% then. It is too easy to talk about attacking when we don't (yet) have the players for it. If we do go down this season, and I am still convinced we won't, it will be the best defensive record ever to be relegated (I think) 

 

The teams that have stayed up have generally done so by being solid at the back in the first couple of years and trying to build from there. If we stick to what we do best we will be ok this season.

 

I'm not convinced we won't go down I thought we'd stay up but we aren't winning the games I thought we would

But I don't think we would do any better throwing caution to the wind and attacking more we just don't have the team. Forget games like palace. We won't win any games playing like that. The players were just off it. But still we only lost by one goal even though 3/4 of the team didn't turn up

To stay up we need a bit off luck in games like Everton to just get that extra goal two extra points 3 times between now and the end of the season and we survive

I have us bottom on 27 points going down with Swansea and Sunderland, with Palace surviving in 17th position on 28 points. It's going to be that tight!

I honestly can't see where our goals are going to come from. We've got no momentum, no consistency and no clue in the final 3rd. We don't defend from the front any more, our lone striker spends much of his time stood on the half way line and I can only see us grinding out a few draws.

 

We don't play with any intensity, never on the front foot. We pass the ball nicely at times in our own half but seem to get a nose bleed as soon as we get close to the opposition box, and I don't recall the last time we had a clear cut chance in front of goal in the league.

 

Unless something changes, I'm afraid I agree with most pundits that we're sleepwalking into relegation. I really hope I'm wrong but I just don't see the first choice 11 getting us through this.

I think we all would be. I'd be interested to see how we get to 37 points though? 3 wins 6 draws 3 defeats? 4 wins 3 draws 5 defeats? 5 wins and 7 defeats. To go from 22 points in 26 games to 15 in 12 games would be a decent little turnaround. Not sure how likely it is but if we can get a couple of wins things will look a bit better.

I feel like we're going to have to beat one or two of the big boys along the way to make a fist of this relegation fight. A surprise win tomorrow and our tails will be up for the cup game next weekend and the United game the weekend after.

Do we get to play three of them at home again as well?

 

Only if you ask nicely enough

 

Hmm...well I'll let someone else ask then cos I'm too much of a sarky bugger.

I dont think it matters, we play the same away and home, so doesent matter if we are home or away, might even suit us if Hull, Bournemouth and Swansea will play even more open then they do away, our only threats are on the few breaks we get.

    • I thought we won some kind of award a few years ago?  Might have been medical rather than sports science, mind.
    • What a signing this lad is turning out to be.    
    • Honestly I might be totally naive but I've never heard of this until today, has it been reported in the press, or is it something you need to be ITK to be be aware of?   We've all criticised the club for recruitment as it has looked poor from the outside looking in but I wasn't aware of an amateurish sports science department. I'm not trying to have an argument I've just never heard this before. 
    • I'm not sure how relevant having access to information is quite honestly. What information do you think would change people's minds about homosexuality?  Is there any that could suddenly take someone from 'I hate it' to 'I think it's fine'?  I'm not so sure?  There's plenty of people in this country who don't like homosexuality, and as I said, it wasn't that long ago that it was illegal here.  As I also said, it is a religious thing.  Even in this country it was essentially illegal because the dominant religion here held that it was wrong.  The difference isn't that we are more enlightened, I think it's just that we are less religious, and this secularism, especially in newer generations, is what is removing the stigma attached to homosexuality.  I don't believe it is ignorance and it's too easy to label it as such.  They know exactly why they believe what they do. 
    • We've had 2 old school managers in quick succession, I'd guess some moved on due to lack of input.
